Fr. Peter Mary Rookey His Legacy of Compassion
The purpose of this website is to promote the life and legacy of Servite Father Peter Mary Rookey and his cause for canonization as a saint of the Roman Catholic Church. He was often referred to as “The Man of Miracles” or “The Healing Priest”. I’m Timothy Peter Rookey, the nephew of Fr. Peter and webmaster of this site. My wife Anne and I wish to acquaint people around the world with the warm compassion and holiness of Fr. Peter through the photos and videos of him found on this website.
We originally created this website with the intention of it being a bridge to open the process of canonization for Fr. Peter. Unfortunately, however, the Servite Order must be in support of it and they have not given their approval. So there is currently no formal cause for Fr. Peter’s path to sainthood. Donations received for Father’s sainthood cause will be used to promote his legacy and for charity for those in need. If you wish to express your desire for a cause of canonization to commence for Fr. Peter you may write the provincial of the Chicago province of the Servite Order at this address:
Our Lady of Sorrows Basilica
Attn: Prior Provincial Eugene Smith
3121 W Jackson Blvd
Chicago, IL 60612
(773) 533-0360 Ext. 218
If you or someone you know is in need of a physical, emotional, or spiritual healing, please pray to Fr. Peter, invoking his intercession. Please let us know if you receive a healing, miracle, or other answered prayer intention from praying to Fr. Peter through his intercession from heaven.
If you have any prayer intentions please post them on the prayer request page. We are happy to pray for you and will ask our uncle, Fr. Peter, to intercede.
